STRINGSTRING
VAM7 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"VAM7" - Vacuolar SNARE protein that functions with Vam3p in vacuolar protein trafficking in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

VAM7Vacuolar SNARE protein that functions with Vam3p in vacuolar protein trafficking; has an N-terminal PX domain (phosphoinositide-binding module) that binds PtdIns-3-P and mediates membrane binding; SNAP-25 homolog; Essential for proper morphogenesis of the vacuole. May exist as structural reinforcement on the surface of the vacuolar membrane and be required for maintenance against rupture by osmotic pressure (316 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
VAM3
Syntaxin-like vacuolar t-SNARE; functions with Vam7p in vacuolar protein trafficking; mediates docking/fusion of late transport intermediates with the vacuole; has an acidic di-leucine sorting signal and C-terminal transmembrane region; Required for vacuolar assembly. Provides the t-SNARE function in a late step of the vacuolar assembly. Required for homotypic vacuole membrane fusion, autophagy and fusion of biosynthetic transport vesicles with the vacuole. Required for the delivery of alpha-factor receptor-ligand complexes to the vacuole (283 aa)
       
  0.998
NYV1
v-SNARE component of the vacuolar SNARE complex involved in vesicle fusion; inhibits ATP-dependent Ca(2+) transport activity of Pmc1p in the vacuolar membrane; Vacuolar v-SNARE required for docking. Only involved in homotypic vacuole fusion. Required for Ca(2+) efflux from the vacuolar lumen, a required signal for subsequent membrane fusion events, by inhibiting vacuolar Ca(2+)-ATPase PMC1 and promoting Ca(2+) release when forming trans-SNARE assemblies during the docking step (253 aa)
       
  0.997
VTI1
Protein involved in cis-Golgi membrane traffic; v-SNARE that interacts with two t-SNARES, Sed5p and Pep12p; required for multiple vacuolar sorting pathways; t-SNARE found in various SNARE complexes involved in multiple transport pathways. The composition of the t-SNARE complexes is specific for a limited number of v-SNAREs and therefore allows only the vesicles carrying the matching v-SNARE to fuse (217 aa)
       
  0.997
PEP12
Target membrane receptor (t-SNARE) for vesicular intermediates traveling between the Golgi apparatus and the vacuole; controls entry of biosynthetic, endocytic, and retrograde traffic into the prevacuolar compartment; syntaxin; Plays a role in the sorting and targeting of vacuolar proteases (288 aa)
       
  0.993
SEC17
Peripheral membrane protein required for vesicular transport between ER and Golgi, the ’priming’ step in homotypic vacuole fusion, and autophagy; stimulates the ATPase activity of Sec18p; has similarity to mammalian alpha-SNAP; SNARE complex protein that binds to cis-SNARE complexes on membranes and is required for vesicular transport between the endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi apparatus and for homotypic vacuole fusion. During the priming step of membrane fusion, is released from cis-SNARE complexes by SEC18 to establish a pool of unpaired SNAREs, which are required for interactio [...] (292 aa)
     
  0.985
YPT7
Rab family GTPase; GTP-binding protein of the rab family; required for homotypic fusion event in vacuole inheritance, for endosome-endosome fusion, similar to mammalian Rab7; Needed for homotypic vacuole fusion, the last step in the vacuole inheritance process (208 aa)
       
 
  0.979
YKT6
Vesicle membrane protein (v-SNARE) with acyltransferase activity; involved in trafficking to and within the Golgi, endocytic trafficking to the vacuole, and vacuolar fusion; membrane localization due to prenylation at the carboxy-terminus (200 aa)
       
  0.973
VPS41
Vacuolar membrane protein that is a subunit of the homotypic vacuole fusion and vacuole protein sorting (HOPS) complex; essential for membrane docking and fusion at the Golgi-to-endosome and endosome-to-vacuole stages of protein transport; Required for vacuolar assembly and vacuolar traffic. Acts as component of the HOPS complex that acts during the docking stage of vacuole fusion. HOPS is an effector for the vacuolar Rab GTPase YPT7 and is required for vacuolar SNARE complex assembly. It remains bound to SNARE complexes after vacuole fusion (992 aa)
     
 
  0.970
VAM6
Vacuolar protein that plays a critical role in the tethering steps of vacuolar membrane fusion by facilitating guanine nucleotide exchange on small guanosine triphosphatase Ypt7p; Required for vacuolar assembly. Acts as component of the HOPS complex that acts during the docking stage of vacuole fusion. HOPS is an effector for the vacuolar Rab GTPase YPT7 and is required for vacuolar SNARE complex assembly. It remains bound to SNARE complexes after vacuole fusion (1049 aa)

VPS33
ATP-binding protein that is a subunit of the HOPS complex and of the CORVET tethering complex; essential for protein sorting, vesicle docking and fusion at the vacuole; Essential for vacuolar biogenesis, maturation and function. Involved in the sorting of vacuolar proteins from the Golgi apparatus and their targeting to the vacuole. Acts as component of the HOPS complex that acts during the docking stage of vacuole fusion. HOPS is an effector for the vacuolar Rab GTPase YPT7 and is required for vacuolar SNARE complex assembly. It remains bound to SNARE complexes after vacuole fusion (691 aa)
